ZXB will be operated exclusively by ZIM, offering customers a wide range of advantages including the fastest transit time to Baltimore; guaranteed space and equipment without rolling; late cutoff from Asia ports; dedicated out-of-gate lane to avoid queues in Baltimore; and expedited rail/air/road connections to inland destinations.

Eli Glickman, ZIM President & CEO, commented: “The opening of this new service is another example of our efforts to develop our speedy and dedicated premium lines, which constitute a highly competitive alternative to air freight.

“As part of our vision and strategy, we are taking initiatives to support our customers especially during this difficult time of supply chain disruptions. This new line is another building block in our ZIM eCommerce eXpress lines, which we launched in 2020 with our first line from South China to Los Angeles and developed to become a network of multiple lines with the addition of the new ZXB service.”

In February ZIM announced a new charter agreement with Navios Maritime Partners L.P. to charter a total of 13 container vessels.
